Week 2 was a rather crazy one due to the number of injuries that occurred throughout the league. Key players such as Saquon Barkley and Courtland Sutton suffered season-ending injuries, which in turn broke the hearts of their fantasy football owners.

As we will do after each week’s set of games, let’s take a look at the players who performed well despite mostly being unowned in fantasy football. In order to be eligible, the player must have been owned in less than 25 percent of ESPN fantasy football leagues. Each week, one quarterback, two running backs, two wide receivers, and one tight end will be highlighted.


QB - Ryan Fitzpatrick, Dolphins (328 passing yards, 2 passing touchdowns, 12 rushing yards)

After a miserable Week 1, where he threw three interceptions, Fitzpatrick bounced back with a solid performance against a strong Bills defense. Only twice in his 15 starts last year did he finish with at least 300 yards passing and multiple passing scores.


RB - Dion Lewis, Giants (20 rushing yards, 1 rushing touchdown, 4 receptions, 36 receiving yards)

With the terrible news that Saquon Barkley tore his ACL on Tuesday, Lewis’ workload will substantially change as he is likely to be the Giants’ lead back. According to the New York Post, New York brought in two-time Pro Bowl running back Devonta Freeman in for a workout.
